Unless you are familiar with their decor I would avoid anything they might feel obligated to display - I know I don't have much extra space (mostly taken up by cabinets) in my kitchen. I think the recipe book is a great idea especially if you focus on recipes that are quick & easy to fix on busy work days. I also like "cardmaker"s idea of each person contributing something beyond the recipe - maybe a potluck with the recipes contributed if you have a day you celebrate the holidays at work. It could be something on the order of a kitchen bridal shower someone had for me back in the dark ages when I was married. Everyone brought a recipe and something that was used to make it. It could be an ingredient, a utensil, a baking dish or serving dish. The guests were my elderly aunts and everyone brought what they could afford - which made it nice. I treasure those recipes in my aunts' handwriting!
